The capping of ngroups to NGROUPS_MAX looks like a possibe reason.

Adding this debug might show us if we're exceeding it:

diff --git a/src/util/virutil.c b/src/util/virutil.c
index 89d2cf011f..effc02b898 100644
--- a/src/util/virutil.c
+++ b/src/util/virutil.c
@@ -1043,6 +1043,7 @@ virSetUIDGID(uid_t uid, gid_t gid, gid_t *groups ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED,
     }
 
 # if HAVE_SETGROUPS
+    VIR_DEBUG("setgroups %d max %d", ngroups, NGROUPS_MAX);
     if (gid != (gid_t)-1 && setgroups(ngroups, groups) < 0) {
         virReportSystemError(errno, "%s",
                              _("cannot set supplemental groups"));
